middle class families, the obama administration had asked middle class families to tell their stories about how it would impact them if congress followed the president's plan and extended those bush era tax cuts. today 85 of those people who responded to that request will be here at the white house meeting with the president. today the white house is also launching hash tag my 2 k on twitter for people to send in more experiences. it stands for my 2,000, a reference to $2,200 that the president says middle class families will save if the bush era tax cuts are extended. it's part of a push to get americans to press their elected leaders to make a deal to extend the tax cuts for everyone except those families making over $250,000. republicans have said they're prepared to talk about raising taxes on wealthier americans if democrats will agree to cut entitlement spending. which the white house seemed to agree with. >> it is the president's position that when we're talking about a broad balanced approach to dealing with our fiscal challenges, that that includes dealing with entitlements.
